Chinese Deep Space Exploration: Solar System Boundary Mission


Introduction

The three key directions of China's deep space exploration are by chronological and difficulty level order: the Earth's suburb with the Moon, the interplanetary neighborhood with Mars, the remote part of the interplanetary regions with the giant planets Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus.

And finally, the next frontier, uncharted Terra Incognita boundaries of our Solar System, bordering the next neighboring stellar systems, door to the interstellar space.

As far as we know this ultimate phase has no official name to date.

Therefore, Galactic Penguin names the first of the planned Interstellar Heliosphere Probes, after a famous Chinese ancient voyager and Admiral: "KOXINGA-1" (太阳系边际探测器“英雄郑成功一号”).

As a legacy to Admiral 'KOXINGA' Zheng Chengong's acts of conspicuous gallantry in the presence of the European enemy land-grabbers and squatters, whether on land or at sea, his immortal feats would inspire and give courage four centuries later, to a full son of the Empire Of Japan's, Marshal-Admiral Togo Heihachiro, to repel the Northern Russian invaders who had illegally de facto seized Manchuria from the Qing Empire under the pretence of anti-Boxer-Rebellion intervention, in the epochal Battle of Tsushima in May 1905.

Interstellar Heliosphere Probe's Design

For a mission that will see two probes sent in two opposite directions to reach the Interstellar space, the duration will exceed several decades to last over a century!

No power plant other than nuclear can be envisaged: a 10kW fast reactor thermoelectric generator.

To keep the radiation level below the critical threshold level, the reactor section will be separated by a lengthy boom from the sensitive electronic compartments of the probe.

Turned toward the Earth, ion thrusters will be fixed to the same section, together with the oversized deployable communication radio antenna.

State-owned space giant prepares for giant step in space

China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp, a State-owned space conglomerate, has made many strides in its commercial space businesses, according to a company executive.

Fu Zhimin, chief technical officer at CASIC, said at the opening ceremony of the sixth China International Commercial Aerospace Forum, which opened in Hubei's provincial capital of Wuhan on Monday morning, that his company has made many achievements in carrier rocket and satellite industries.

The State-owned giant has launched 11 Kuaizhou-series solid-propellant carrier rockets: two Kuaizhou 1s and nine Kuaizhou 1As, becoming a competitive player in the domestic space launch arena, he said.

It is now working on the development of what designers expect to be the most powerful solid-propellant rocket in China.

Once in service, the 25-meter Kuaizhou 11 will boast a liftoff weight of 78 metric tons and will be able to place a 1-ton payload into a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 700 kilometer.

CASIC began to develop the Kuaizhou series in 2009 as a low-cost, quick-response product for the commercial space market. Kuaizhou is the largest solid-propellant rocket family in China, as opposed to the Long March series that mainly relies on liquid fuel.

In the satellite industry, CASIC's Hongyun system, China's first low-orbit broadband communications experimental system, has completed hundreds of in-orbit tests and produced a large quantity of data, laying a solid foundation for the construction of a space-based internet, Fu said.

Hongyun, currently consisting of a satellite and ground facilities, has effectively proven the technological feasibility of a low-orbit, satellite-enabled internet system. The company intends to place more than 150 Hongyun satellites into orbit about 1,000 kilometers above Earth by around 2023.

Once in full service, the system will allow online browsing, video display and instant messaging service in remote regions now having difficulties doing these things, he said.

Another major space-based asset of CASIC, Xingyun is China's first and only space-based internet of things network and now has two satellites. CASIC aims to deploy 12 Xingyun 2-series satellites in 2021 to join the first two such spacecraft and then establish a small system for trial run.

Fu said that in CASIC's plan, the Xingyun network will have about 80 low-orbiting, narrowband communications satellites upon its completion around 2023 and will provide global coverage to users by that time.

Once the network becomes fully operational, it will offer users round-the-clock access to the internet of things, which is defined as a network of almost all physical items, bringing numerous advantages to users ranging from better control of their devices and higher operational efficiency to optimized utilization of resources, the executive noted.

More than 200 government officials, company representatives and researchers took part in the forum's opening ceremony. Scientists, businesspeople and observers from China and nine foreign nations are expected to partake in several online themed discussions on Monday and Tuesday.
